No matter what kind of writing you do, if you are a writer in the East Texas area, we welcome you! We have a lot to offer our members: monthly meetings, workshops, and good old fashioned camaraderie. Have a look around on our site,  then come visit us at our next meeting. We can’t wait to meet you!

Upcoming Meetings

We normally meet 3 times a month. The first Monday is our business meeting, the second Monday is our general meeting when we usually offer a speaker or program relating to writing, editing, publishing, etc. and the third Monday is our Nutz & Boltz meeting which is a more informal time for our members to interact and share helpful information with each other. CTimes and locations usually remain consistent.

 Writing Tip of the week

“Becoming a writer is about becoming conscious. When you’re conscious and writing from a place of insight and simplicity and real caring about the truth, you have the ability to throw the lights on for your reader. He or she will recognize his or her life and truth in what you say, in the pictures you have painted, and this decreases the terrible sense of isolation that we have all had too much of.” ― Anne Lamott
